In 2016, Jackie was elected to serve as an Alternate Delegate for Donald J. Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. It was a great week of enthusiasm and energy as delegates cast their votes on the floor, state by state. The final night of convention was a great celebration and a time for a new beginning for the country with the nomination of Donald J. Trump for our next president.

Jackie Gay has a passion to be elected to serve as a Trump Delegate in Alabama. This is an opportunity to represent the voters and an honor to cast a vote on the floor for President Trump in August 2020 at the national convention in Charlotte, NC. The question often asked is if there is monetary reward for serving as a delegate. The candidate has to pay a fee of $150 to be placed on the ballot and pays all expenses involved with convention which includes transportation and lodging for about a week.
